Voice of America — Law enforcement authorities are continuing to investigate a white nationalist rally that turned violent Sunday in the western city of Sacramento, California, leaving at least 10 people injured—two of them critically.

“This rally was a snapshot of different groups of which the most violent are extremists, the anti-fascists on one hand and the white nationalists on the other,” said Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino.

Levin described Sunday’s violence as “fissures of anxiety and fear” during a period of “great change.” Levin expressed concern that the fissures “extend well into the mainstream, even among people of good will.”
